Hangar deck. Tyrol tells Starbuck, "There are three, so you got lots." I assume he's talking about ships. It's funny no matter what he means, really. Tigh strolls past in his dress uniform, trailed by Biers and Bell. Starbuck snidely calls, "Have fun on Cloud Nine!" Tigh climbs into a Raptor, and they prepare to take off, and I'm a little bored. Smoke begins pouring out of the ship. I wait for Tyrol to run over and say, "Oh, that's where I left those tons of dry ice I was saving." The hatch reopens as crewmen rush over with fire extinguishers. Tigh pops out and asks what happened. Tyrol examines a panel on the ship and explains, "The main buss is totaled -- looks like somebody took a hammer to it." He looks at Tigh extra-seriously and adds, "If this had blown in transit, the cabin would have vented to space." Dun dun dun. This is just so cheesy.
Commercials. Aw, the guy playing Bell is an actual cameraman! So he was really shooting, and they intended to use that footage but it turned out that a lot of it was unusable since he kept catching the behind-the-scenes crew in his own shots. Heh.
Tigh is in his quarters, putting away his dress uniform. So he isn't going to the conference at all? Is someone else going? Because it sounded kind of important, but nobody mentions it again this week. And shouldn't someone be conducting an investigation into the sabotage? Shouldn't someone wonder if a Cylon is responsible? Why is this episode so dopey? So many questions. Ellen observes that someone wants to kill Tigh because of what happened aboard the Gideon, and adds that Biers is eager to do an interview with Tigh. He scoffs at that idea and pours himself a drink. Ellen tries to sow some paranoia, and claims that Adama and the Prez might sacrifice Tigh to regain the support of the fleet. She sighs, "This is so like you, Saul. Always the proud soldier. Taking the heat because it's honorable." She pets him soothingly and asks, "When are you gonna realize we're all alone out here?" Tigh gulps his drink and edges away.
